Federal prosecutors sent subpoenas to President Trump's South Florida Mar-a-Lago club and the political fundraising committee Trump Victory as part of the FBI's campaign finance investigation into Li "Cindy" Yang, the Miami Herald reports.

Details: They're meant to obtain records on Yang, a Trump donor and founder of a Florida massage parlor chain caught in a human trafficking investigation, and several of her associates and companies.

What we know:

  • Yang, a frequent guest of Mar-a-lago, is alleged to have been selling access to Trump and his family to clients in China.
  • Yujing Zhang, a Chinese national, was charged with illegally entering Mar-a-Lago in April. She claimed she was there to attend an event after paying a Yang-linked company.
  • As a member of the "Florida Association for China Unification," Yang is part of a global network of pro-government groups backed by the Chinese Communist Party.

Trump vows to block stimulus funding for mail-in voting and USPS

President Trump on Thursday told Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo that Democratic demands to fund mail-in voting and the U.S. Postal Service in ongoing coronavirus stimulus negotiations were a non-starter.

Why it matters: Trump directly linked Democrats' desired $3.6 billion for mail-in voting and $25 billion for the USPS to his continued baseless claims that increased mail-in voting will lead to widespread voter fraud.

A steep decline in coal-fired power combined with rising wind and solar output drove the carbon-free sources to record global market share in the first half of 2020, per a new analysis from the environmental think tank Ember.

Why it matters: The report shows how the coronavirus pandemic is speeding the ongoing shakeup of the global power mix — but also how it's occurring too slowly to reach international climate goals.
